Portrait of Jack


Jack was a fifteen-year-old Australian who “never actually lived in Australia.” He was born in the Oregon, USA, lived in Fargo, North Dakota, USA for seven years, then in Singapore for five years; at the time of this posting, he lived in Tehachapi, California, USA.

At sixteen,  Jack was six foot two and still growing. Jack liked to play video games, go outside, and walk his dog, Cici, an 11 year old a Border Collie/American Eskimo cross.

Jack liked almost everything at school except for math which was “terrible” for him. He didn’t have specific plans for the future and said, “we’ll see what happens.”

It was fun taking Jack’s portrait because he was so excited about being part of the portrait project and his mom was nice to speak with also. It was, all in all, an upbeat, positive experience for all.
